Some recent things I've been working on.
First up; Toys I made for the features
opener of the October issue of Wired UK (photographed
by Wired), next a bunch of sketchbook pages. I've found
myself working more and more in sketchbooks
recently, trying to escape from stress and get out
of my head for a bit. Next are a few postcards I've
been sending out as part of Postcard Club 
and finally the Logo for TOYS, an exhibition of 
3D work me and my good friends Jayde and Dave are
organizing. Visit the website for loads more info here.   


A few new pieces: a couple of collages made for fun, the first
I've had a chance to do in a while! The first one is of the sun
god watching over magi making a pilgrimage through the desert,
the second is the weatherman. Next is a recommendation
from The Jazz Factory. Quite a few people have asked me for
Jazz recommendations recently, so I thought I would 
revive The Jazz Factory to do just that. Keep an eye on tumblr 
for more of these. Next a teaser for an upcoming show of 
3D work I'm curating with some friends of mine (stay tuned for lots
more on this very soon!). Finally: the cover and a couple of spreads
of a new Sketchbook zine I've made for Jazz Dad Books,
this will debut at Safari Festival at the end of the month!
I've done a couple of interviews recently about Jazz Dad Books,
one with Offlife magazine and another with Comics and Cola


I'm working on a science fiction/space romance
comic, and working on some characters with these 
collages. Also some sketchbook work, a piece I 
made for It's Nice That's in the Metro -
The Spectral Pilot and Earth Mother
(the two pivotal characters in the comic).
Also I have now set up a bigcartel shop where
you can buy prints and original art for lo lo prices.
Check it out here, buy now to save disappointment later


Some new things I've been working on recently:
top 4 are the cover and a few spreads from a book
I made for Dwell show a couple of months back.
Next is a sketchbook page, a composite of almost
all the postcards I have made for Postcard Club, and 
a page from a Quagley a comic I'm working on for 
Jazz Dad Books  being released in a zine pack at
ELCAF later this month. Finally are 3 T-Shirts I've
painted formyself, because I can't afford the nice
ones other people make. I'm working on lots and lots
of new things at the moment, so keep looking for
more updates!             


After all the excitement of Pick Me Up here is a quick update
with a recent commission illustration a brochure for
Ensemble Strumentale Scaligero, a children's concert
at La Scala in Milan earlier in May. Lovely to work with
Milan based design agency Tita Milano on this!    


Some recent work: cover and page spreads from
 Therapy a zine collecting drawings made 
as escapism from depression, stress and anxiety,
a couple of postcards sent as part of Postcard Club
and finally a panel from a 6 page comic I did for the
latest issue of Anorak Magazine.
I've also just had an update of my proper website


I've always tried to keep a balance in my work between drawing, collage, toy making etc. however recently i've found myself drawing more and more and more. The past 6 or so months have been pretty rough for me (for various reasons) and I've recently found drawing to be an incredible release of emotions and a form of therapeutic escapism. I've always been vocal about how my work is my way of having fun, so it has been pretty interesting to see it take on an alternate, albeit similar role for me. Above are a selection of these drawings which i'm collecting (along with others) in a new zine Therapy which will be published through my new small press Jazz Dad Books. Following are recent sketchbook pages, a comic about waiting, a print made for The Pendulum and a small collage I made just for me. I'm looking forward to getting back to playing, experimenting and having fun over the next few months.
